Email received from Facebook: Facebook Catalog data feed file upload error “image_link: URL Incorrectly Formatted”

I’m using Pixel Caffeine to upload WooCommerce products to Facebook Commerce Catalog.

[Possible] fix from Pixel Caffeine

“You have some sort of caching. In this case, make sure every cache you have (from WordPress or from the hosting) are flushed.”

“Temporary deactivate [SG Optimizer plugin] and try to refresh the product feed in order to see if the issue is fixed, just to confirm that that plugin is the cause.”

Purge Cache

In my case, I purged the cache in SG Optimizer WordPress plugin:

  1. WordPress admin
  2. SG Optimizer
  3. SUPERCACHER SETTINGS tab
  4. Click “PURGE CACHE” button
SG Optimizer Purge Cache
SG Optimizer Purge Cache

Refresh Product Feed

  1. WordPress admin
  2. Pixel Caffeine
  3. Product Catalog tab
  4. Click “REFRESH NOW” button
Pixel Caffeine Refresh Feed
Pixel Caffeine Refresh Feed

Re-upload Facebook Catalog Data Source Feed

  1. Facebook Business Suite
  2. Commerce
  3. Catalog
  4. Data Sources
  5. Data Feeds section
  6. Click Data Feed link
  7. Click Overview tab
  8. In Next Upload section, click “Upload Now” button
  9. In Schedules section, click “Request Update Now” button
  10. A green dot should now appear after “… products updated or added” in Upload Sessions Result section
Facebook Commerce Data Sources - Upload Now
Facebook Commerce Data Sources – Upload Now
Facebook Commerce Data Sources - Request Update Now
Facebook Commerce Data Sources – Request Update Now
Facebook Commerce Data Sources - Upload Successful
Facebook Commerce Data Sources – Upload Successful

After re-uploading Facebook Commerce Catalog Data Sources Feed, a GREEN light should appear in the Upload Sessions Result section (see image above).

FINAL

I still need to confirm that this fix allows Facebook to auto-upload the Feed every 24 hours.
